Praise

“Despite a focus on health and inner harmony by countless modern practitioners, neijia arts such as taijiquan were once formidable fighting forms. In this outstanding book, Sifu Starr demonstrates how they can be once again. Advanced concepts are explained in everyday language, augmented with ingenious drills, and demonstrated through practical applications that can apply to both the internal and external martial arts. Profound insight and sensible advice are tempered by a whimsical writing style that makes this comprehensive tome a true pleasure to read.”
—Lawrence Kane, Author of Surviving Armed Assaults and Martial Arts Instruction; co-author of The Way of Kata, The Way to Black Belt, and The Little Black Book of Violence

“For too long, Westerners have viewed Tai Chi as a soft New Age calisthenic.  Martial Maneuvers brings Tai Chi and other internal Chinese fighting arts back to their roots.  Pete Starr’s extensive knowledge of both Japanese and Chinese systems makes this an enjoyable read that any martial artist will enjoy, from the seasoned Karate fighter to the person just trying a ‘soft’ art for the first time.”
—Gene Ching, Associate Publisher, Kung Fu Tai Chi Magazine
